My experience in protecting intellectual property has been on both sides of the coin. I oversaw the development of intumescent fire retardant coating technology as a technical manager in industry where I needed to ensure all relevant IP was captured. I now handle all aspects of handling patent work in diverse industries ranging from oil drilling and exploration, vehicle components and medical devices.

Previous to my commercial experience, I studied at the University of Birmingham where I was awarded a first class honours degree in physics with theoretical physics. I went on to complete my doctorate at the same university in theoretical condensed matter physics focusing on the area of optical lattices.

I have also completed the Queen Mary Certificate of Intellectual Property and won the GlaxoSmithKline prize for the best performance in patent exams.

I joined Forresters in 2012 after my time in industry and enjoy the variety of intellectual challenges that arise in IP, where legal and commercial complexities are often intertwined with technical problems and inventions.

Away from the office I like to keep fit by running, and trying new things in the kitchen, watching films, and learning to play the tabla.
